Tenure: Freehold

A charming Grade II Listed farmhouse, with a separate detached oast house and leisure facilities, within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area. Delightful gardens and grounds with tennis court, pond and fields. Timber framed barn housing a swimming pool. Garaging. In all about 33.7 acres

The property is a charming example of a small Wealden estate, nestling amidst beautiful landscaped gardens in a rural location, surrounded by open farmland and ancient woodland, yet conveniently placed for the amenities of the popular town of Cranbrook and within easy reach of Staplehurst mainline station.

Attractive Grade II Listed buildings include the sympathetically refurbished 17th Century farmhouse with later 18th Century additions and a substantial timber framed barn, believed to date from the 16th Century or earlier, incorporating a heated swimming pool, changing and shower facilities and a mezzanine gallery / studio.

Having been sensitively updated, this well presented home features a wealth of exposed timbers and beams, high ceilings and beautiful oak flooring to the majority of the rooms, leaded light windows with oak frames, period style radiators, John Cullen lighting system and wiring for Bang & Olufsen.

In addition, to the west of the main house, lies a detached oast house with private garden. It is well-screened by mature hedging and has access via a separate drive. The accommodation provides an open plan kitchen / sitting room, dining room, four bedrooms and two bath / shower rooms.

The property is approached via a lane, flanked by fields and woodland. Gates open to a gravelled parking area in front of the garaging. Formal lawned gardens surround the property with a multitude of mature trees, shrubs and established flower borders. There is also a floodlit tennis court and pavilion, screened by evergreen hedging.

An impressive Grade II Listed barn lies immediately to the east of the parking area and incorporates an indoor heated swimming pool, shower and changing rooms and a substantial mezzanine gallery / studio. There is also a wood store and a further detached period barn.
The majority of the land extends to the north, south and west of the gardens and oast and includes several fenced fields and an area of ancient woodland. A footpath runs along the private lane (which is owned by Great Wadd Farmhouse) and through the field to the north of the house (3 other properties have a right of access over the lane).


The property is situated in a wonderful rural position on the edge of Frittenden village which provides for day-to-day needs with its village shop and public house. Staplehurst is close by which offers a wider range of shops, bank, supermarket and mainline station with a regular service to London in about an hour. Rail services are also available from nearby Headcorn and the International Eurostar terminal at Ashford which provides a regular service to the continent. There is an excellent choice of state and private schools in the area, including Frittenden Primary School, and the property lies within the Cranbrook School Catchment Area.
